Gpu upgrade on good ol lga775 system

Hi guys I have a old system and need help choosing a graphics card now this is mainly for my younger brothers whom want to play runescape on a vga 19" monitor

Psu is 250w so a gpu with low power consumption would be ideal

Price range is £30 however can stretch hard to £40 but would prefer 30 or below

So far I've found some

Xfx 5450 £19
Sapphire 5450 £23
Sapphire 6450 £28
Gt 610 £32

Any other suggestions or recommendations please and is the cost between a 5450 and 6450 worth it?

thanks for the help

  1. Those are probably the best you will be able to do at that price and with that small PSU. Do you know the +12V rating of the PSU? Full size case or low profile SSF?

    I suggest dont choose xfx, from that list i suggest GT610. i own xfx before and not perform at all.
  3. Not sure about the 12v rating I'm afraid pretty generic psu and it's a matx case just really looking for which is the best card performance per £ reminding main uses are just runescape and youtube

    The HD 6450 is the best of the bunch: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-7.html
    slightly faster than the fastest Intel integrated graphics.
